International captain Nick Price predicted a wonderful week of entertaining golf for fans at the Presidents Cup on Tuesday, but after a decade of demoralizing defeats he would surely settle for winning ugly against another powerful United States team.
INCHEON, South Korea – It will be a new putter and a new caddie for Adam Scott at this week’s Presidents Cup. Well, not an entirely new caddie. David Clark, who finished this most recent PGA Tour season working for Paul Casey, will caddie for Scott this week at Jack Nicklaus Golf Club Korea. The […]
Phil Mickelson studied the line of the putt from both sides, and then he stood over an imaginary golf ball about halfway to the hole and gently swung his putter to make sure he had the right read.

INCHEON, South Korea – For once, Jay Haas could use some old-fashioned self-absorbed narcissism, the kind of selfishness professional athletes are known for, and the American dozen want no part of it. For weeks now Haas, the captain of this week’s U.S. Presidents Cup team, has tried to pick the collective’s thoughts on potential pairings […]
INCHEON, South Korea – It’s been five weeks since Adam Scott’s season ended at The Barclays and the Australian spent that time making what he called a “forced change” to a conventional-length putter.
